Feature Friday {Sarbear - all things crochet} and a giveaway!

Our first Friday Feature comes from a local artist who has some amazing talent!

"My name is Sarah and I live in Kansas. I am 23 years old and happily married to an awesome hard working man. Currently I am 38 weeks pregnant with our first little one. I taught myself to crochet about a year ago just as a winter hobby when it was too cold to go out and do anything else. I struggled at first but soon got the hang of it and loved it. I decided to open a shop when I was making things for my family and friends and someone mentioned I should look into Etsy. I had never heard of it before but checked it out. After getting laid off in December of last year I thought what the heck, might as well try my hand at it since I would be staying home all day.
I love creating adorable wearables for babies and adults and have grown in skill greatly from spending so much time working with yarn. My other hobbies include photography, yoga and sewing.
My favorite things to make are booties for little ones. I love how cute they always turn out and they make great gifts. I mainly use Lion's Brand and Sugar N Cream yarn, they can be used for almost any pattern and both are soft."
